The Knowledge and Employability courses are designed for students who meet the criteria and learn best through experiences that integrate essential and employability skills in occupational contexts. The courses provide students opportunities to enter into employment when they complete their individualized program of studies at Sir John. Students who complete the requirements of this program will gain a leaving certificate in their final year at school. Some students may transition successfully from the program to other courses to achieve a senior high school diploma. Reviewing each student's learning plan on an annual basis and adjusting their goals and courses as needed are important parts of the process.

Entry into this program is done through a Counsellor and approval by the Principal. Students work at their own pace and there are no mandatory deadlines except those set by the student. Students are required to attend a minimum of one evening a week.
